A good sized site within walking distance of the centre of Belfort. It's next to a lake which has a pleasant walk around. We were offered a small pitch that was difficult to get our van into (& it's only a VW T5!) but we were also told that if we found a better pitch to help ourselves & just let them know - so we did. Pitch sizes to vary, as does the amount of hedges, trees around each one. A big modern toilet/shower block, which as previous people have mentioned did seem to have a bit of a whiff around it at times.
The blow up pool has been replaced this year with a very nice outdoor one with space to relax around it - although it wasn't warm enough to swim (for us!).
There is a supermarket about 25min walk or 10min bike ride away. Belfort is v interesting place & loved fact that you could walk in. A site we would visit again.
We were quite disappointed when we first arrived at this site - a trip to the loo block had me holding my nose and persuading my husband to let me use the caravan loo - but things improved and generally speaking it was ok.
The blow-up pool was fun and the location pretty good - in a pleasant suburb of Belfort where you could fairly easily walk into the city itself or very easily around the 'etang' on a purpose-built fitness path.
We were also disappointed not to be able to partake in water sports, despite having checked out the possibility on the internet previously. But the sailing club was all locked up and lonely, weekdays and weekend.
Belfort itself quite interesting, especially the citadel, but I'm not sure that you could spend more than a couple of days here without something else to do!
We camped with our 2 children 9 and 11yrs. We loved the pool, it was solid and clean.
Fresh bread and croissant available every morning by order, small shop.
2 evenings a speciality food vendor came selling Tarte flet and piella at good price and generous servings. A regular feature. Other evenings/ afternoon local fruit and vege / speciality sausisans /local wine/cheese vendors came.
The toilet block is clean, free hot water in the showers. Great washing up area and laundry room.
2 mornings a week there is free canoeing with an instructor on the etang, I went with the children in the rain and it was still great.
Free archery for anyone interested on site one evening and climbing, again with tuition - in French but my kids managed. It was supposed to be up the Miot - the medieval tower, but it was slippery due to rain, so not to be put off the venue was changed to a fantastic climbing wall at the College Gymnasium.
Free guide tour of the history of town of Belfort - interesting but long, easy walking from campsite. Good shopping. Good TI in town. Cinema. Art Gallery. Good walk along Historic wall.
The canoe club also offers sailing with tuition bike hire at good prices.
Monsieur and all staff were great and very helpful.
Flat pitch, flexible choice of pitch, some bigger than others.
Busy on some evenings with one night stop overs, for going into Germany and Suisse but still quiet at night.
Camp site well sign posted in all parts of the town.
We stayed for 10 nights, plenty going on, on site, excellent point from which to explore surroundings - Balon de Alsace and Maservaux worth a visit. Good cycle paths and route around the Etang.
Would gladly go again. Not very well advertise in the brochure - ie the free canoeing, climbing and archery were omitted.
